Why You Need It

Love gel but fear the dreaded crunch? This soft hold gel gives you the definition you’re looking for without being crunchy. The non-drying formula with wheat and soy proteins surrounds your curls with a non-sticky curl cast that enhances shape, fights frizz, and amplifies shine and bounce.

Stylist Tip

Devachan stylist Dennielle

“For best results, take your gel into the shower! After conditioning and getting curls “ribbon-y”, apply Light Defining Gel to soaking wet hair, scrunching lightly to distribute. Then take small sections and scrunch from ends to roots, squeezing tightly. Scrunch with the DevaTowel or a t-shirt to absorb excess moisture after applying styling products and then diffuse or air-dry.”

Dennielle, Devachan Stylist

how to use

The key to our gels is to apply to soaking wet curls and then scrunch, scrunch, scrunch! Give ‘em another scrunch when fully dry to release the curl cast… and unleash soft, bouncy gorgeousness.

Most of the time great
This gel works well for me most of the time if I use it correctly (i.e., apply it when hair is soaking wet BEFORE using any towel, then use only a microfibre towel to scrunch it gently). If you use a regular towel, it does get frizzy. Also, I find that I get a lot of build up from Deva gels in general, so prefer to alternate between this and another product depending on when I washed my hair.

Do not recommend
This product not only increased the frizz in my hair, it ULTRALY defined my curls. The bottle reads that it would lightly define my curls, but that was not the case. Definitley do not recommend to people looking for subtle curls.

I love this gel!
I'm seeing a lot of people complaining about this gel and I don't know if it's the way they're applying it, their drying method, or the other products that they use but I have 3b hair and I get wonderful definition that lasts for days.

Perfection for fine waves
This gel is amazing...I have a lot of very fine, 2b-2c waves with some 3a curls underneath, and I do not like to scrunch my hair, as it ends up looking flat and much shorter than it is. With other gels, my hair looks flat and I lose length, but with light defining gel, my hair looks long and frizz-free, almost like beach-waves. Plus, there are no flakes EVER, and no crunch. Thank you DevaCurl, for offering products for wavy girls too.
